[Intro]
Am  F  C  Em


[Verse]
Am
Oh the wind whistles down
    F
The cold dark street tonight
        C                       Em
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
        Am
And the boys chase the girls

with the curls in their hair
          F
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
        C
And the songs they get louder
                       Em
Each one better than before


[Chorus]
                       Am
And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life
                       F
And you wake up in the morning

and you're head feels twice the size
                   C
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
                        Em
Where you gonna sleep tonight?


[Chorus]
                       Am
And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life
                       F
And you wake up in the morning

and you're head feels twice the size
                   C
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
                        Em
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?


[Interlude]
Am  F  C  Em


[Verse]
          Am
So you're heading down the road in your taxi for four
           F
And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door
    C                            Em
But nobody's in and nobody's home 'til four
          Am
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
         F
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
    C
And where you're gonna go
                               Em
and where you're gonna sleep tonight


[Chorus]
                       Am
And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life
                       F
And you wake up in the morning

and you're head feels twice the size
                   C
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
                        Em
Where you gonna sleep tonight?


[Chorus]
                       Am
And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life
                       F
And you wake up in the morning

and you're head feels twice the size
                   C
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
                        Em
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
                        Em
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life
                       F
And you wake up in the morning

and you're head feels twice the size
                   C
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
                        Em
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Thinking this is the life
                       F
And you wake up in the morning

and you're head feels twice the size
